Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - Gasoline prices in Rochester have gone up again, rising to $2.44 for a gallon of regular.

That’s up about a dime from Thursday- and 14 cents since Monday.

Price hikes are being reported around the state and the country because of the refinery issues in the Harvey storm zone and the Labor Day weekend.

More increases are expected until the Gulf Coast refineries are back to normal.
